Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Northborough Free Library is to provide its customers with a selection of printed, recorded, or electronic materials for all ages.  Materials are purchased for recreation, independent learning, and vocational and educational support.  In addition, the library provides access to materials and information in other libraries or organizations, and from remote electronic databases.               The library also serves as a center of community activity, with programs for preschoolers to the elderly; a meeting place for civic, cultural, social, and other non-profit organizations; and a distribution point for local information. 

Welcome to the Children's Room!

Ask about our new Poetry Program for 4th, 5th, & 6th graders!  Come create some fun & imaginative poems :)

We've got new apps on the iPads!
 We are loaded up with apps for toddlers, and both younger and older elementary school kids.  A lot of these apps have learning elements, but we did add some games and interactive stories just for fun!
Come take a look! 

ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) RESOURCE SECTION
Check out our ASD Resource area!!  We have new books for kids and adults, fidget toys, game packets, and more...  Please stay tuned for our two brand new iPads loaded with special apps!!  These iPads will be available for use in the library!  (2 iPads provided by a grant from the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism - Allison Keller iPad Grant).

Be careful with audio books! They can be finicky!

For people with multi-disc players, occasionally a library CD will get stuck.  This is true, mostly, for multi-cd players installed in cars.  Please play at your own risk.  Thank you!

Each month we get many more calls than we have spots in Children's Programs.  Please remember, if you do not show up for a program, you have taken a spot away from another child who wanted to participate.
The Children's Staff asks that if you cannot attend a program you have signed up for you give us a call to let us know. 
If you do not show up for a monthly program, you will not be allowed to sign up for the same program the following month.
If you are a frequent "no-show", you may be held from signing up for more or future programs.
